Yes, you read right. We can meet for a full day in real life (or at least, we used to be able to!). We still need to come together to solve big problems, and sometimes that takes a big group to have all the knowledge, experience and expertise in the room. We’ll take breaks, run warmups and keep you energized and engaged the whole day.
Facilitators lead and guide teams through important gatherings (think: “lockdowns,” working sessions, strategic meetings, etc.) to achieve better outcomes. They are skilled at developing focused agendas, leading collaborative activities, remaining impartial, and keeping participants on task. Even if you are not a professional facilitator, many of us have to play the role of facilitator at key moments in our day-to-day work. Here’s your chance to learn tools to do it more successfully.
What You'll Learn
Gracefully and effectively host 20-100 people online
Patterns to foster radical conversation
Lead group synthesis of complex data
Tools to plan your large scale gatherings mindfully and collaboratively
